This was true, and you may still need to have it to create the online account, but the security dongle is no longer needed for routine access.

The new World Elite MasterCard is $395, and the fee is not waived for Premier account holders. This is a me too product designed to prevent Chase and Citi from poaching HSBC's deposit clients. HSBC (USA) does not appear to be interested in credit card only relationships.

It's metal at least, so there's that? Though its competitors are too.

HSBC also released a no annual fee card. The branding on the card says 2% cash back but it turns out that it's only for 6 months. Then the card becomes a 1.5% cash back card. Feels like a bait and switch. What a joke!

Here's a piece of junk mail they sent me. Does it look like an offer for a 1.5% cash back card?

Loungekey = Priority Pass?

I noticed the lounge benefit is provided by Loungekey.

Is Loungekey just PriorityPass with a different name?

anyone with Loungekey, do you get access to different lounges that PP or is it pretty much the same?

Also the Premier World Elite only allows you two free visits per year. Subsequent visits are $27/each

LoungeKey is operated by the same owners as Priority Pass. It appears that the credit card itself can be used for entrance, rather than requiring a separate membership card. There is a lounge database here:

I got an offer in the post which waives the 395 dollars for first two years.

Canadian Avios Promo?

Anyone know if there will be another Avios promo for Canadian World Elite cardholders? Last year I think it was in the fall, was expecting to see one by now.

I only got my HSBC Premier Elite card earlier this year (in the UK) so apologies for being unfamiliar. Anyone know if they do a similar BAEC offer in the UK?

Thanks,
JK

Got the email as well, thanks.

Although this is a Premier CC thread, I thought Premier members may like to hear about this. HSBC is currently running a promo for HSBC USA premier clients but it is in branch only.

  • An HSBC Premier or Advance checking account is required to open the promotional 8-month CD.

Is the fee waiver instead of, or in addition to, the new account bonus points?

I'm interested in the Premier card but don't have a Premier checking account. Can I open the checking account, not meet 100k deposit, pay one month $50 fee, get the CC, cancel the checking account, and not pay CC AF?

AF is not waived for non-Premier customers.
